A day, usually.: But more important questions are : 1) how long have you been taking it? Just 2 days? 2) why; if depression/ Anxiety then should not be stopped abruptly 3) If you took accidentally 2 tablet at the same time then it takes 1 day to get out of your system. 4) Please talk to your doctor who prescribed this medicine
